The Wonderboom Airport in Pretoria has reportedly run out of avgas.

Piston engines use avgas, while jet fuel is used for turbine and jet engine aircrafts.

Spokesperson for the City of Tshwane, Console Tleane says the shortage started yesterday morning when avgas ran out from the underground tanks at the airport.

Tleane says the shortage is due to an unexpected demand from aircraft operators.

He says there is still a good supply of jet fuel at the airport and aircrafts using it will not be affected.
